SNOWBLIND 3D > Search for a New Genre Name! > interresting chance conversation
by: Jason Robert Slanina

Earlier today I was listening to some old Big band, Swing, and Jazz music. When I was picking up my passenger, she told me she hated jazz because it was nonsense. Just crap strung together by the artist, all kinds of sounds, and noises put out, no formalization. I disagree with all she was saying, but there is some small truth to it, and a similarity between this task, which I just looked at. the way you describe "Since we use green screen and also change or even abuse the way equipment is meant to be used, and just do things differently than on "normal" film sets -", just seems to fit it what she was complaining about jazz. Naturally this lead me to thinking this is the movie equivalent of jazz, or at least the small budget films are, and the green screen is just an amplifier. so how about -Film jazz or perhaps- Electric screenings or my favorite - The Blue green meannies (okay that’s more beetles than jazz, but I like the parody)

The problem with "freestyle" is it implies that you're filming with no clear rules, whereas a lot of amateur films do follow rules of a genre. And a lot of commercial films have no clear plan at all, for example Mike Figgis' "Hotel" was heavily criticised for being a bit too freestyle: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0278487/ To get linguistic for a second, the word "jazz" in modern English usually only means a genre of music, though it can sometimes be used in certain phrases to mean something else ("and all that jazz"="and all those things") ("to jazz up"="to make more interesting"). Despite it being a relatively new word in english, the origins of the word "jazz" are unclear. There are dozens of rival theories, but there is no definitive proof. It used to be used to describe all sorts of things, but as a noun it now only has one primary meaning. To add to the mystery, some people spelt it "jass" or "jas" early in its lifetime.

Wreckamovie Platform > New Features that you want to see > Clickable Comments on "Home"-Page ?!?
by: Kalle Max Hofmann

I thought I had suggested that before, maybe it got lost in translation... WHY is there a clickable, direct link to new shots in the "Latest Activity" box on the home page... But if someone comments on a shot, only the wrecker who commented and the production are hotlinked - not the shot. So if you want to get there to read what has been commented, you have to do about 3-4 manual clicks until you're there. I think it would be great (and easy) to change this :-) Also, I think for production leaders, it would be very useful to have a tab to jump directly to their production from the "Mywreck" page. Thanks, KMH :D

No probs! I think we can make it better and clearer.

Ah great... NOW I get it! the word "commented" is clickable... Okay... I'm a little embarassed now LOL... But you'l have to agree, that it's a little misleading that the name of the poster and the "commented" are both red without any means of separation... So I think for dumbasses like myself it would be more convenient to have the name of the shot clickable! Okay now I'm gonna dig myself some hole to hide in ;P

Hmm... well I use Firefox and Carl uses Safari, we both have the same problem. I'll add a screenshot to my original post so you can see what I mean. The original shot I gave is clickable (red) and the comment you gave is only black. So the only chance of reading it (if my original post wasn't right next to it like in this example) would be clicking the highlighted "Wreck A Movie Platform", then click tasks, then "new features you want to see" and so on and so on ;-) Anyway, I'm really looking forward to the update :D Cheers, KMH :-)

Not sure that I get this. The comments are clickable (at least for me) exactly the same way as the shots on the home page. I think it works? Agree that it should be easier to get to your productions for Mywreck. Adding a tab to your won productions should be pretty easy, but I think there's a lot of other things we need to look at as well. Now that there's a lot of productions and more and more activity, we need to look at how to reduce the clutter and improve usability. Next round of updates is going to be in August, hope to include as much as possible of the input and feedback into the next updates.

Iron Sky > EARTH FLEET: USA > Stealth ship
by: Jokke Kaksonen

I'd love to see a US stealth ship. How about it looking like a ball of wool. It would be transported into orbit by a shuttle, and once it is in space it unfurls into a huge hairy ball with carbon fiber strings tens of meters long stretching in all directions, in order to dampen radar waves and heat detection. It's propulsion would be tricky, either mass propulsion (throw things out one way and have the ship move the other, maybe some kind of solar sail. or some other tricky way to avoid detection. This would be armed with a tactical nuclear device and could be sent on a stealth mission to the moon to strike the Nazis headquarter.

Sounds odd:-) Problem is, with as much electronic warfare as there seems to be in this little war,visual detection could be a big problem. And with current tech, i think heat still would be an issue, engine has to be somewhere. Its just 2018 after all:-)

Iron Sky > EARTH FLEET: USA > Stealth ship
In Iron Sky, the Earth will stand up and defend itself against the Nazi enemy. In 2018, many of the countries have developed their space program - maybe in the shadows, maybe in open - to also be able to engage in a fight in the orbit or in deep space, if necessary. In this task, we need ideas for what the space ship of the United States of America would look like. We'd request everything from descriptions to concept drawings, from crude ideas to finalized artwork - whatever is your game. Few guidelines: - The film is set in 2018 - so don't get over-excited on tech! - There's no such thing as "interstellar travel" or "antigravity" invented. - Be reasonable - try to be functional, and limit your ideas to feasible technologial advancements. - For ideas, you can look for example the "Venture Star" -program: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venture_Star - Also, the ideas can be pretty wacky ones - maybe some huge project a country has been working on is, instead of being what it looks like, a battleship? We've already discussed the weapons technology in the previous task: http://www.wreckamovie.com/tasks/show/52 Maybe reading through the thumbed-up -shots (you can sort them in the task) would give some ideas as well. Included you'll find some concept art of stuff our concept artist Jussi has done. You may use them non-commercially and share them with others, but not claim them your own or charge money from them. Here's more info on the CC-license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/us/ As the licence in Iron Sky production requires, you need to give all the rights for derivative or original work you do for this task to the Iron Sky team for us being able to use them. Go for it, people! Let's design the greatest space fleet in the history of film!
